Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Spring, Summer, And Sneezes: I'll Just Smile First

Posted 04-25-2012 at 03:20 PM by case44

As spring continues its unpredictable journey in my life, the effects I deal with are sometimes not the greatest for this Texas gizzard. Love the warmer weather and the sunshine, but I also love thunderstorms (as long as I'm not at work and parked in protection from potential hail). I could probably do without the grass spore counts being as high as they are, as I've been the loudest sneezer I know, both at my abode and my workplace. Those a-choos can be heard all the way in Louisiana.

And today in North Texas? Try about 90 degrees for a high. And in West Texas around Lubbock? They got up to 103 this afternoon! Comancharia is bone dry right now, as the humidity out there is 4 percent. They need rain, but then, so still do we in Dallas. When I think of spring, I think baseball, green plants and trees, green grass (for me to sneeze at, but in all seriousness, it's a great smell once it's mowed), the Byron Nelson, the Colonial, Mother's Day, swimming pools, tanning salons, and another great road trip or two. My favorite time of the year, bar none. And summer? Well, face it, sports fans, because it is around the corner.

I'm grinning from ear to ear, life being so good right now. Now's the time for me to hit the allergy medicine (which does cause drowsiness) and, just maybe, the allergens can just go away so I can enjoy this favorite time of the year.

Nighty night??

    Yeah, I was in Austin this afternoon and at 1 PM or so it was already 93, according to my car thermometer (maybe there's a margin for error because I was traveling on 35). It was 94 at 5 in San Antonio, according to the NWS. People in the Great White North don't know what they're missing...I guess.

    Shoe, I'd love to hear from some readers from up there. It'd be nice to see their take on this very blog page while they still shovel some snow up there.

    I'm sneezing, and they're freezing!
